The Dream Team at Shepherd of the Valley - Niles (1500 McKinley Ave.) is bowling up a perfect day with assisted living resident, Josephine Woods.
Jo, as she likes to be called, will turn 101 on April 23 and all she wants for her birthday is to go bowling with her family. Jo was captain of her bowling team in the Housewives Trio League and also belonged to a church league but has not bowled in over 20 years. She spent many days at McKinley Lanes and would love to go back there to relive memories of the days with her friends and make new memories with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
On April 15th, 2016 the Dream Team departed Shepherd of the Valley - Niles around 5:00 and headed to McKinley Lanes (2666 Robbins Ave., Niles) where a reserved lane and a bunch of family members were waiting for her. Jo also received a special surprise from members of the Niles McKinley bowling team.
